Nice work so far. You might want to download the high resolution Gentoo logo from my site and use it for your work. It's much better than cutting the logo out of other wallpapers. ;)

It's already released so that you don't have to wait any longer. But I've got to say that the final doesn't include the keramik style. Grmpf!

Logo Abstractions

Wallpaper Other by zwobits 8 comments

I don't really know how I should rate your logo. Ok, it's clean but it also looks a bit too much "80's style" to me.
Why don't you do some KDE wallpapers etc. with your photos at I really like your work there. Especially the b/w photography. I would like to see these used for wallpapers etc...

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by ian 22 comments

i thought about this too. but then i asked myself if i would fade or smear the combobox if the whole splash wouldn't be too "smooth" at all. i think that then it would lack of crispness. same with the "k e r a m i c s t y l e" text in the combobox. i antialiased it first but it looked not sharp enougth to me. so i let the text and the combobox the way it is now.

you mean the liquid adopted splash for keramik?
than the answer must be "no".

Old Time Splash Screen

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by joelsonoda 9 comments

You said that you couldn't validate that the splashes icons are at the right place etc. because KDE loads too fast.

To test the "splash-loading-sequence" simply enter "ksplash --test" on a terminal. That makes the whole development of a splashscreen much easier.
